Where to Find a Sideways Rifle in Fortnite
The Sideways Rifle and Minigun are good weapons to get in Fortnite. Defeating your enemies with this weapon is not only fun, but you can also complete the Sideways Showdown Week Challenges and get some XP.
This is not the first appearance of Sideways weapons in Fortnite. It originally came to Fortnite as part of the Season 2, Chapter 3 update. It is from the Sideways dimension that can be upgraded to deal bonus damage.
You can get the Sideways Rifle in two different ways. The first one is to kill a player carrying a Sideways Rifle, but the issue is how to find out if your opponent actually has the gun. The other is to search around and loot chests, hoping to find a Sideways Rifle.
Unfortunately, there is no NPC in the game to sell the weapon or a specific location to get the weapon. After you have found the weapon, you can also upgrade them. You can see the price for upgrading Sideways weapons down below:
- Rare to Epic – 375 Gold Bars
- Epic to Legendary – 500 Gold Bars
- Legendary to Mythic – 750 Gold Bars
Upgrading the weapons will help you complete the Sideways Showdown Quests, especially the tasks dealing a certain amount of damage to the opponent.
